Art Lover Ground: The International Hub of Artists in Europe


ALG’s roots are to be found in London back in 2015, when the founder Federica Desantis, an Italian sales professional, was working and living there. Being an art lover, she spent hours and days walking in galleries and museums without having the chance to meet the actual artists of the pieces she would discover.

The core idea of ALG was to create an art event, that she and her friends were dreaming of: To give emerging artists the possibility to showcase their work as well as to meet and interact with their audience. The debut ALG event took place in May 2015 in the heart of the artsy area of Shoreditch, London.

Two years later, the 9th edition of the event is taking place in the center of Barcelona, at the 400m2 gallery Arteria BCN. With more than 100 applications and days of deliberations, it results in the selection of 25 talented artists. The gallery Arteria offers an airy and bright space for artists to showcase their pieces. Guests enjoy the exhibition as well as live art and sound performances.

Art Lover Ground is more than an event. It is the playground for artists and art lovers to meet and exchange. It is a unique opportunity for young and emerging artists to get exposure and visibility. For many of them, it will be their first exhibition. ALG’s goal is to give them a voice and to open new doors into the artistic world. The challenge of Art Lover Ground is to continue to build a vibrant community of artists of all disciplines to share experiences, advice and to collaborate on future projects.
